Later that day there were cocktails with 5 fabulous women at Logan Brown, one of Wellington's best restaurants, followed by their superb 'pre-theatre' dinner. Logan Brown is the kind of hi-brow place that wins major awards. It is perfect in every way, from the beautifully decorated 1920s former bank building it is housed in, the three tiny courses of the pre-theatre menu, the wine list, the doris plum daiquiris...if you have someone to impress, it's the place to go.

Now, although the night could have ended in fine style right there, it got even better. We went to see the 2006 World of Wearable Arts Show. You can see some of the entries in a slideshow here at Stuff. It was a truly amazing show with spectacular staging. It was music, dance and theatre. It was a little Moulin Rouge, alien ballet, greek theatre, a kids cartoon, pyrotechnics, acrobatics. It was sexy, laugh-out-loud funny, and made me want to dance. The pacific section was breathtaking. Suzie Moncrief, you're a bloody genius.The winner, "The Love of Icarus", by Rodney Leong, made of 20,000 plastic collar stays
